Richmond Climate-Controlled Storage

Climate-controlled storage units are highly recommended and, in some cases, necessary for a range of sensitive, delicate, or valuable items and belongings. Critical questions to ask prior to purchasing or renting one of our fantastic storage units would be whether you have belongings that are sensitive to extreme heat or cold and whether there is an extrinsic value to any of the items that need to be stored i.e., if they’re rare items or not. To wit, there are numerous benefits to utilizing a climate-controlled storage unit. Essentially, these storage units will protect your belongings from extreme hot or cold temperatures, particularly if they’re not designed for storage in one or the other, as well as protect any items that are susceptible to mold or mildew from moisture buildup. Additionally, it helps create a barrier from dust and debris while also enabling the control of airflow to the unit or warehouse. 

The following is a list of items that could ideally use climate-controlled storage:

  • Mattresses
